How to remove try me button from fairy lights

Removing a "Try Me" button from fairy lights can be done with a few simple steps. The "Try Me" button is typically used to demonstrate the lights' functionality in stores, and it can be removed for regular use. Here's how to do it:

Materials you will need:

  1. Small screwdriver (flathead or Phillips, depending on the button)


  1. Safety precautions: Ensure that the fairy lights are disconnected from any power source before starting.

  2. Examine the button: Look at the "Try Me" button closely to identify how it is attached to the string of fairy lights. It may be secured by a screw or may have a different type of fastening mechanism.

  3. Remove the screw (if applicable): If the button is held in place by a screw, use a small screwdriver to carefully loosen and remove the screw. Turn it counterclockwise (lefty-loosey) to release it.

  4. Detach the button: Once the screw is removed, gently pull the "Try Me" button away from the string of fairy lights. It should come off easily.

  5. Inspect the lights: After removing the button, inspect the lights and the wire to make sure there are no loose wires or exposed connections. If you notice any damage, you may need to repair it before using the lights.

  6. Reassemble (if necessary): If you wish to use the lights without the "Try Me" button, you can simply plug them into a power source, and they should function as usual. If you removed a screw, you can choose to reinsert it to secure the wires in place, but it's not always necessary for regular use.

  7. Test the lights: Once you've removed the "Try Me" button and ensured that everything is in good condition, plug in the lights and test them to make sure they work correctly.

By following these steps, you should be able to remove the "Try Me" button from your fairy lights without much difficulty. Remember to exercise caution when using any tools to avoid damaging the lights or wires. Always disconnect the lights from the power source before making any modifications.
